    Found lovely fresh watercress at one of the grocery stores yesterday, and huge persimmons! They need some time to ripen but I do have a couple in a brown paper bag with bananas. Toasted sandwich with Thai Sesame and Ginger mayo (Hellman's) - love the bite of the cress.

    With leftover Chicken and Rice from supper 2 nights ago, I made Congee / jook / rice porridge. Love it with preserved egg, pork floss, fuyu, cilantro, and crueller.

    So many lovely meals since I'd been AWOL for a few days! After day surgery, hubby wanted comfort food. Ginger Chicken and Rice in a small cast iron pot And Egg Foo Young with beansprouts and Chinese sausage Next day, hubby was feeling better, and the lamb chops made him even better! I cooked the lamb chops in the oven to avoid creating smokey lingering haze in the kitchen, which is open to our u

    @SmithyApologies for delay in responding. We've been running back and forth to Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre for day surgery on kidney stones for hubby. Life is slowly getting back to pandemic normalcy. Manitoba is still under Covid level RED until late January. We were doing gigs in and around Middlesbourough. Of course the fish 'n' chips were the main draw, but we needed some variation when we are there for 2 months. The best fish' n' chips was at Whitby. Must have been the sea air! The recipe I have used for years is in a book called Eastern Miditerranean Cooking by Roger Debasque - p

    Memories of England: Our band performed in many workingmen clubs in the Yorkshire area in 1976, 77, and 79. The clubs all close at 11 pm, which was foreign to us as our gigs in Canada would run until at least 2 am! We were at loose ends, so we followed the other musicians and entertainers to many of the Greek and Indian restaurants that are open all night for a late meal. Moussaka was one dish that remained a favourite after we came home and through the years. This delicious dish brings back so many wonderful memories. Eaten as before, chips (air fryer) and peas.

    Had leftover baked tater and canned corn = Boston Clam Chowder, topped with fresh dill and Tajin seasoning. Can't find oyster crackers here, so I thought I'd toss in a couple of waffle pretzels. Nope...way too crunchy! 😄 Made a big pot of Hot'n'Sour soup today, to take to our daughter in the city next week, and to share with our son and friends in town.

    @DuvelThe little one frenching and devouring = champion! Pulled some beef tenderloin trimmings from the freezer. All that I'd been stockpiling for family gatherings need to be used up now. This package was packed with my FoodSaver - from March! That was a worthwhile purchase. Just seasoned with Montreal Steak Spice and grilled in cast iron pan. Had the oven on for shortbread, so tossed in a couple of taters, and opened a can of corn. I have been using kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressin

    Comfort food needed these last few days: Instant Pot Coconut Curry Chicken. Must remember to add the coconut milk AFTER high pressure cooking! Eaten with a wild rice / brown rice mix. Beef & Tomato with Egg Picked up a bunch of frozen dim sum from the local Chinese grocery. Not bad in a pinch, and because I am not energetic enough to make my own. Pastry a bit too thick for me. The sticky rice was

    Dinner 2020

    After eating restaurant food (take out from the hotel restaurant) for 3 days, it was great to be back in my own kitchen. Baby back ribs, slow roasted in the oven, then slathered with Hoisin sauce and 5-spice powder, then under the broiler for a few minutes. Eaten with wild rice and brown rice mix, and a stir-fry of cauliflower, carrots, and bell peppers. Dessert was homemade donuts and chewy ginger bread cookies from 2 neighbors!

    At last! A bison burger success! In the past, my bison burgers have always turned out dry. Tonight, I used lean ground bison, added an egg, panko crumbs, shredded cheese, Worchestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and mixed with as little handling as possible. Chilled the pattie in the fridge for about 30 minutes while I got the sides ready. These were sprayed with Pam, and grilled in the cast iron pan on med. high. Took a little longer, but didn't smoke up the kitchen! The burgers were topped with slices of avocado, grilled red onions, accompanied by slaw, carrots, Cavendish tater wedges, and a p

    Spent the day confirming a procedure for hubby at the hospital 3 hours away, booking hotel, and running about the clinic here to get his preliminary blood work etc done, I developed a craving for tater tots! Thank goodness I still have some in the freezer from when the grans come over. Thawed some tenderloin, seared in a cast iron grill pan, and added some green beans and mushrooms (for him), and supper was enjoyed!

    I was just recalling what my Mom said. It's good enough to know as it gives me opportunity to make and enjoy these foods! Another cooling ingredient is Bitter Melon and watermelon, which we love. Durian is yeet hai - hot ingredient, but we love it too!

    Oh Man! All those American Thanksgiving meals look fabulous, and delicious. May have to grab some turkey soon! Beef Enchilada - Might be a bit overloaded so they were difficult to take out of the pan. They were good tho'. Had guacamole and rice with one and lots of leftovers the son picked up. Cantonese BBQ Duck from a BBQ shop and my freezer with spicy udo

    They are very reasonable at the moment, so I had picked up several 2 lb bags @3.98! There are usually 5 - 6 persimmons in each bag. They are kept in the fridge and I pull them out a few at a time. When they are soft, we enjoy them out of hand.

    You called these Turkish squash? They are the same as Hachiya persimmons? They really make your mouth pucker when not ripe. So would grilling make them better?

    Now I want green mung beans. Might have to make a dessert soup with peanuts, etc. Supposed to be a cooling ingredient?

    Had a massage yesterday and it wiped me out completely. Have had some stress with hubby's health issues needing apptns etc. So I guess the massage must have released some of that stress! I crashed for 2 hours right after I got home, had reheated Scotch Broth for lunch then slept again for about 3 hours! This was all I could manage for supper: Opened a can of this and cooked 2 salted eggs with the rice, and stir-fried some Shanghai Bok Choy.

    Steamed oyster sauce seasoned chicken with Chinese mushrooms and Chinese sausage. There was quite a bit of juice in the bowl, and it was so good with jasmine rice. I kept going back to the rice pot, scrape up a spoonful of rice and scoop up just enough juice for a good mouthful. Blanched baby gai lan, then a quick swirl in the hot wok with oil. Topped with a pile of ginger, chopped garlic, and a drizzle of sesame oil. I can make a meal just with this vegetable!

    With the bones from the shoulder of lamb the other day, I made Scotch broth - very satisfying brunch today! Threw in some leeks and turnips, carrot, peas, oregano, thyme, barley, whole black peppercorns, and topped with parsley

    @Kim Shook: I'd say you've got a real winner in Mr. Kim. My hubby can not cook at all, other than maybe throw in a frozen pizza or TV dinner into the oven, or open a tin of soup or salmon and toast. Thank goodness we have one son living close by and good friends. Best wishes to both you and @patti And a Happy and Safe American Thanksgiving to all!

    Hubby had a GI procedure yesterday, so easily digestible and mild food was required. I had chicken congee made for his release at noon, and he was like a hungry bear after fasting for a day and night! Supper was pan-seared cornstarch-dusted and Old Bay seasoned pickerel, lemon dill sauce, toasted tater chunks, and peas.

    I was just given 2 one-lb chunks of cheese, one yellow cheddar and one white cheddar - by our local Samaritan House. No, we are not homeless or needing food bank, but the cases of cheese had a little mold, so cannot be cooked and fed to people who frequent their soup kitchen! The whole lot was to be trashed, but kitchen staff took them home, portioned and wrapped for their own use any friends who were interested for curb side pick up. Manitoba is in Covid -19 Code Red. It's the law, apparently, that soup kitchens cannot use any cheese, food with any mold. I can understand about other foo

    I too was inspired by @liuzhou spicy ribs dinner but I did it lazy woman style. Seasoned the ribs, seared and cooked them in the IP for 20 minutes. Drained them well, then stir-fried them in the hot oil with Toban sauce. Eaten with stir-fried asparagus and bell peppers, and jasmine rice. Dessert was a ripe persimmon each. Every year about this time,
